Hurt in a Train Accident? Contact Our Firm for the Compensation You Deserve

Train Accidents

Thousands of miles of train-tracks are laid in South Carolina. Everyday these tracks move hundreds of tons of freight as well as passengers. Passenger trains operated by Amtrack travel the major corridors of the state, and freight is transported by carriers CSX and Norfolk Southern, along with some smaller regional carriers. The injury attorneys at the Law Office of James R. Snell, Jr., LLC, are centrally located in Lexington and Columbia, South Carolina. We are able to represent injured people or their families after any train or other transportation accident resulting in injury or death.

Train Derailments

Deaths and major injuries can result during train derailment accidents. This can occur due to operator error, failure to keep lines clear, defective equipment, faulty warning systems, and inoperable crossings. Often times there can be multiple individuals and agencies at-fault for an accident.

Train Injury Compensation

Operators of passenger trains are considered Common Carriers for legal purposes. This means that under South Carolina and Federal law, they owe the highest-level of responsibility to their passengers. When they fail to do so, and an accident results, carriers can be legally liable for medical expenses, pain & suffering, lost wages, and other expenses.
